Did you ever have a teacher that opened doors inside you didn’t know existed? For me it was Miss Sauder, my seventh grade English teacher (back then it was English, not Language Arts). She transformed the way I looked at language and stories. I even changed careers. I was going to be the first female conductor of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. In fifth period English, I discovered my destiny – an English major.
Why am I rambling about 1975? Because Sarah Mulhern is that kind of fabulous teacher. When you read her blog, you get the chance to sit in a chair at the back of the room and catch a ray of enthusiasm – hers and her students. She’s got a great day planned … Enjoy!
